Nine More Thoughts About Vision for 2015

future

A vision should be visual and capture imagination

Real vision transforms people’s lives. It’s a picture of what life will look like after the encounter. What will this compelling vision mean to people the moment they encounter it? What will it mean in five years?

Use words when writing the vision that show this transformation. Unlock the essence of the vision by showing people how it will transform their life instead of telling them.

It’s Time for 2015 Vision Preparation

A Vision Should Be Clear and Simple

I am continually reminded of a passage of scripture my mom would tell me throughout my high school and college years. It’s found in Habakkuk 2:2 and it reads,

write the vision, make it plain on tablets, so that the runner who reads it can carry the correct message.

Clear and simple doesn’t have to mean simpleton. Instead, clear and simple means easy to remember and evokes action. When I read the Bible verse above, I see a scene where a runner is running by and when he sees what is written; he can digest and remember the content to pass it on to those who must know of this vision.
